Kozmo'z Beauty Salon's aestheticians and stylists devote themselves to pampering and beautifying their clients from head to toe. They cut and color hair, pairing new 'dos with the skin-rejuvenating effects of three types of facials. After shaping and buffing toe- and fingernails, they coat each one with a long-lasting set of colorful gels. They also offer facial and body waxing to banish the unwanted hair that betrays your minotaur roots.
Determined to offer a bevy of beautifying options to their customers, Gold Tans doesn’t stop at providing a slew of high-quality tanning services inside their welcoming confines. They also offer up mobile spray tanning, during which they whisk their hand-picked spray tan formulas to private events to ready bridal parties, prom participants, and Oscar statuettes for their big shindigs. In addition to custom airbrush spray tanning and traditional tanning, the accommodating staff treats clients to soothing massages and slimming body wraps.
The airbrush artists of Spray Tan California consider spray tanning a safer, more healthful alternative to baking under UV rays; it makes sense, then, that their formulas steer clear of harsh chemicals and other ingredients that may damage skin. Rather than bronze with artificial dyes, they infuse skin with serums made from eco-friendly compounds and organic essential oils. Green tea, coffee-bean extracts, and jojoba-seed oils work together to achieve the same results as hours of outdoor tanning or meticulous finger painting.
Growing up, Maria Garcia watched many of her family members deal with skin imperfections. Seeing their frustration rise and self-esteem drop, Maria turned to a life of aesthetics, which led her to attend and graduate from Federico Beauty Institute in 2005. Now, from within a private treatment room at Flirt Salon & Spa—a J Beverly Hills concept salon decorated with artwork from local artist David Gully—Maria deep cleans epidermises during custom spa facials and exfoliates the skin with microdermabrasion sessions. Maria also waxes away hair on both women and men using techniques that result in minimal pain and absolutely no logical inconsistencies with the DC Comics universe.
When Pamela Troyan opened Salon Secrets Spa in 1993, she set out with a clear goal: to provide clients with a refuge from their daily pressures via the best possible salon and spa experience. She staffed her salon with highly trained stylists and technicians, many of whom studied at elite academies such as Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, and Aveda. She also enrolled Salon Secrets Spa as a certified Aveda Signature Salon, meaning that all of their services (except nail coloring) would employ all-natural, organic Aveda products. With the salon fully staffed and stocked with elite stylists and luxe products, it was time to open. Since then, not much has changed: Pamela still oversees a team of well-educated stylists and technicians who’ve developed a loyal following of repeat customers and amateur paparazzi. Stylists customize looks with organic Aveda color services, as well as mani-peds, paraffin treatments, waxing, and Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions. The spa staff soothes bodies with facials, peels, and microdermabrasion, as well as massages and body wraps. The med spa also beautifies patients with cosmetic services such as skin rejuvanation, VelaShape cellulite reduction, and spider-vein treatments performed or supervised by a certified plastic surgeon.
Though threading primarily deals with hair removal, the real focus of the service is the skin. Many depilation methods extract unwanted strands, but leave skin irritated and subject to wrinkle-producing tugs and yanks. Threading combats these unwanted effects with a 100% cotton thread that loops and uproots unwanted hair, eliminating the need for chemicals that can cause breakouts and require the placement of hazard stickers on faces. Beauty By Thread’s expert technicians wield strings with the utmost precision, creating sultry eyebrow arches and removing hair from upper lips, sideburns, or infringing hair lines.
Threading leaves brows expertly shaped for up to three weeks, and the staff also offer Lizette Mineral eyebrow-makeup kits, which combine 10 shades of water-resistant powders and six stencils that allow clients to maintain beautiful looks at home. Clients can also add an exotic touch to their look with the shop's showcase of ankle bracelets, bangles, and tiaras instead of filling out the endless paperwork required to adopt a pet tiger.
